MoodleMoot Greece 2021 took place online on November 26-27, 2021. The purpose of this annual event is to promote a fruitful and creative dialogue in the educational community about the use of Moodle, to highlight its good practices in Greece, as well as to present innovative uses of Moodle operations in Greece and internationally.

Alexander Mikroyannidis represented KMi and presented his Erasmus+ project OpenLang Network, together with the project coordinator Maria Perifanou (University of Macedonia, Greece). The OpenLang Network project is building a network among all Erasmus+ KA1 Mobility Participants within an open and highly interactive online environment for supporting more efficiently their efforts to develop their language skills of the target mobility EU languages. Alexander Mikroyannidis is the Principal Investigator (PI) of the Open University, in charge of the project’s online platform. This is a key output for the project as a whole, as it offers the technological foundations for the success and sustainability of the project's language learning network.

Alexander Mikroyannidis presented the OpenLang Network platform, which is an open and collaborative Moodle-based environment for networking between language learners and teachers across Europe. Additionally, Maria Perifanou presented the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that has been recently launched on this platform, entitled: "Exploring how to (re)use Language Open Educational Resources (OERs)". This 4-week MOOC aims at guiding participants through the discovery, use, and reuse of OER for teaching purposes in language education.
